The Siberian Husky is the fastest of all registered sledge dog breeds (the other breeds are: Alaska Malamute, Greenland or Eskimo Dog and Samoyed). The dogs are medium sized (approx. 18 to 27 kg) with strong feet and a thick fur, providing good protection against the icy winds of the north. They are friendly to humans and enjoy running and working. The breed originated in eastern Siberia, in the areas of Tschutschki. At the beginning of the last century they where brought to the United States. There are many stories about the Siberian Husky and the animals have made an important contribution to the development of the North.
The Alaskan Husky is not considered a pure breed in the official sense. Nevertheless, the animals were cultured for one purpose only: to pull a sledge. For breeding purposes only specific races of animals were used which would improve the quality of the dog, ie. the old sledge dogs from the Indian and Eskimo villages, Siberian Huskies, Hounds, Greyhounds, Eskimo Dogs and occasionally Wolves too. There are many variants of the Alaskan Husky, each bred for a different purpose, for example, for sprints or long distances. They are highly specialized and some lines are well known as the ultimate racing huskies (Aurora Huskies, Attla dogs or dogs from Susann Butcher's Trail Breaker Kennel). The appearance of the animals plays only a minor role in breeding, nevertheless there are some very beautiful dogs to be found amongst the Alaskan Huskies.
